-Roadmap before you begin and signpost as you go through your speech. If you don't tell me where it goes, I'll put it off to the side until you do.
-If you are speaking too fast for me to flow, I will put my writing utensil down. If it goes down, that is your sign to slow down.
-Be civil, especially during cross examination time. It stinks to lose because you were equally matched, but one team was too snippy.
*No ad hominem attacks, purposeful misgendering, racist language, etc.
-Use your weighing mechanism or framework throughout the debate, not only at the beginning and only at the end.
*On that note, it is not in your best interest to waste time arguing framework or weighing mechanism unless the framework first provided is unfair. If you ask me to judge using both frameworks/weighing mechanisms, I will, but make sure you tell me how your case fits both.
